World Health Day 2021 – a fairer, healthier world for everyone

World Health Day 2021 - a fairer

This World Health Day it is time to build a fairer, healthier world for everyone

Since it began in 1950, the World Health Organisation’s World Health Day has highlighted a different theme of health each year. The event on April 7th 2021 is about building that fairer, healthier world for all. The campaign will run for the entire year and aims to raise awareness about health inequalities.

Speaking about their event, (click here,) the WHO said that the recent  Covid-19 pandemic had hit communities like those in the Western Pacific hard, pushing people back into poverty and food insecurity. The year of action aims to ‘bring people together to build a fairer, healthier world.’

WHO is urging Government’s to monitor health inequalities and to ‘ensure that all people are able to access quality health services depending on their needs and values within their communities.’
